Symptoms of Dry Eye Disease

Symptoms of Dry Eye Disease may include:

  • Soreness
  • Tired Eyes
  • Changes in Vision
  • Sandy or Gritty Feeling
  • Redness
  • Stinging
  • Foreign Body Sensation
  • Stringy white mucous
  • Eye rubbing
  • Burning
  • Scratchy Sensation
  • Sensitivity to Light
  • Tearing
  • Pressure feeling in eyes
  • Contact Lens Discomfort
  • Blurred Vision

These symptoms are often worse at the end of the day or after visually focusing for a prolonged period on a nearby task. Some though, may find their worst time to be early in the morning and treatment in this situation may be different.

Dry eye symptoms are commonly confused with allergies. Typically, those with allergies complain of itching instead of stinging, burning or a pressure feeling in the eyes.
